A component that embeds the RomaxDesigner process into Dassault Systèmes’ Simulia Isight application is now available.
Engineering analysts can use the component to combine detailed driveline models within their Simulia Isight process, bringing its automation, integration and optimization capabilities to bear on the driveline discipline.
Simulia Isight is used for simulation-based, repeatable, automated design processes. Its processes, including design of experiments and Six-Sigma reliability and robustness studies, can now be used to drive RomaxDesigner analyses to provide insight into design decisions. This, in turn, increases the confidence in designs to meet real-world conditions.
The automatic file handling within Isight allows input and output files, such as PDF reports and RomaxDesigner models to be saved for each design iteration. These files can then be easily accessed in the results window to allow for a detailed comparison between designs.
Throgh processes created by Simulia Isight, RomaxDesigner can work alongside many other industry standard software tools (such as Excel, MATLAB, Dassault Systèmes’ SolidWorks and many others), enabling automatic mapping of input and output parameters, improved process automation and decreased development time.
“In today’s complex product development and manufacturing environment, designers and engineers are using a wide range of software tools to design and simulate their products,” says Sumanth Kumar, vice president, of growth for Simulia, Dassault Systèmes. “Often, chained simulation process flows are required in which the parameters and results from one software package are needed as inputs to another package.
“Rather than manually entering the required data, the RomaxDesigner component allows analysts to integrate detailed driveline models within a Simulia Isight process, thus helping to improve efficiency, accelerate product development, and reduce errors in modeling and simulation assumptions,” Kumar said.
SIMULIA Isight is used to combine multiple cross-disciplinary models and applications together in a simulation process flow, automate their execution across distributed resources, explore the resulting design space, and identify the optimal design parameters subject to required constraints, said Jamie Pears, head of product management, at Romax Technology.
“The component links Simulia Isight processes into RomaxDesigner and other third-party tool analyses, allowing your simulation to account for realistic application conditions,” Pears said.
The Romax Isight component is free for all Romax Enterprise users.
